In Victoria, drug offences can be tried and punished under either local state drug laws (for instances, possession, cultivation, and trafficking), or Commonwealth federal drug laws (for instance, importation). Drug offences are taken very seriously by the courts, and it is important for your interests to be protected at the earliest stage.
Contact us now to discuss your drug charges and the circumstances which have led to these issues.
We will review your drug case carefully, and it is important for us to be fully briefed on what has led to the police becoming involved in the first place, whether the investigative conduct is legal and appropriate, and other circumstances relevant to determining whether there are any defences to the charge, whether the matter needs to go to court, and what are the likely drug penalties. It may be necessary to refer you to a drug counsellor before the matter goes to trial in case their are any issues with drug addiction or need for rehabilitation.
